Employment Topics

Training and Reemployment

We have analyzed the effectiveness of different reemployment strategies, including training and services for displaced workers, and conducted the most comprehensive study to date of the long-term impacts of different Individual Training Account models to help unemployed Americans get training to help them return to work. 

The Workforce Investment Act (WIA), which replaced the Job Training Partnership Act (JTPA) in 1998, consolidated a fragmented system of employment and training programs and provide universal access to services. The reform stressed customer choice, gave state and local agencies more flexibility in service design, strengthened local accountability for customer outcomes, engaged businesses, and changed services provided to youth. Our rigorous evaluations of programs such as the WIA Adult and Dislocated Worker programs, which is estimating the programs’ effects on employment and earnings for adults, dislocated workers, and key subgroups, are providing evidence to inform decision making .
